I think we should ask ourselves this question. It's one thing we don't want the government to be limiting our free speech. We don't want the government to be censoring us but, should the government also have a role in protecting us in our abilities to speak our minds rather than this de-platforming by these private companies.
That act as conduits you know social media is not really a media platform it's not a publishing platform this is what these media companies have been arguing for a long time. They've been saying we're not publishers and we're not responsible for the content that's on our websites meanwhile they then act as publishers when they then remove content that they deem to be fake news or controversial in some way. So the really straddling this line are they media publishers and therefore are they responsible for are the call all the content that is being published on their platform? Or are they really more like a telephone company where they're providing a service for people to connect?
